We have been going to Singing Sands for breakfast and lunch for years. Suddenly yesterday we were asked to not use the pool, regardless of having 8 people spend $300 on lunch. And there's a dog that lies across the room in the lobby and you have to step over his leash that's about 18 inches high, no one greets...

This was the second stop on my husband and I's honeymoon and it was simply beautiful! Once you get passed the fact that you wont get the same amenities you are used to in american style hotels (aka refrigerator, air conditioning, coffee maker, microwave) you realize you are in a beautiful cabana just steps from the beach and hotel bar....

Whether you've come to lose yourself or find your self, you couldn't choose a better spot. The grounds are lush and truly tropical. With only eight accommodations it is intimate and personal. Every space is oriented to the beautiful beach. The grounds, buildings and bungalows are immaculate. With dark wood structures and peaked roof ceilings the feel is Polynesian and...

Their sign says "Casual Elegance" and that says it all. Relaxing, romantic, charming. Staff is so sweet and efficient you feel like they are true friends before you leave. Loved this place. Food was fresh and original. Fine dinning in a casual atmosphere. Couldn't be improved.

This was paradise. The huts are clean, private & located right on the beach. The place is small and friendly and we felt like we were the only ones on the island. The beach was very clean and the water was cleaner. There are hammocks, wonderful food & drinks and excellent service. Everyone is super friendly & helpful. This was...

For travel on a budget but wanting a truly unique and tropical experience Singing Sands is awesome! Romantic Belize accommodations with beautiful teak wood huts that are a really amazing. Look at the pics I posted. How could this be reasonable? It is such a great find. Located on the Placencia peninsula about midway to the village. No A/C but...

Very nice and relaxed place to be. We stayed in a beachfront cabana with seaview, super. Nice trip to cockscomb basin forest reserve and good diving with seahorse diving. Enjoyed the food, the surroundings and really had a great time. Friendly staff , helpfull when needed. In short: a place where we would go back if we come to Placencia...

This is a review for Singing Sands and for Oceans Edge. Because we had a conflict in our schedule, we were a day late coming down. Mario was so gracious in putting us at Oceans Edge just down the street. We spoke daily before coming and daily after we arrived. He even came over to check on us. They were...

Very disappointed in this hotel/resort. Rooms were sparsely furnished with little lighting. Like being in a cave. Staff tried to make things right but with negative results. After one nights stay we were switched to another upgraded room which was worse than the original assigned room. Only double beds. Good dining and good beach location is what they offer.

We found this place using Frommer's Travel guide and loved every second of this place. The view and proximity to the water was amazing. The staff were great and felt very welcomed here. We arrived to Belize on a later flight and drove from belize city to Placencia. It was a wonderful drive ( take hummingbird highway). We arrived at...
